After the implementation of the new tariff regime in the country by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai), the DTH and cable sector have undergone massive changes. However, that is not the only reason for changes in the sector. The coming of Reliance Jio GigaFiber has also urged the companies to ramp up their operations and efforts to introduce various offers, products and services. Hathway is also a significant name in this regard, and the cable TV service provider is introducing new offers, products and services. While we have already taken a look at the offers being provided by Hathway in broadband, today we are going to be talking about the set-top box and the unique features that it will be offering to the cable TV subscribers of the company.
